BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) – Oscar Lozada, accused of killing his wife in Baton Rouge roughly twelve years ago, continues to stand trial during the week of Feb. 6. 

The State’s witnesses on Wednesday pointed to some of the only physical evidence presented so far, including blood found in the couple’s home. Prosecutors say Lozado strangled and dismembered West Baton Rouge teacher, Sylviane Fink Lozada, before burying her body in cement tubs and sinking them in water along I-10. 

Dozens of photos and videos were shown in court Wednesday. The pictures showed blood splatter found by investigators in the couple’s home. A forensic team used a chemical called blue star to identify the blood as the chemical lit up upon detecting blood. 

The videos showed Lozada and the couple’s young daughter going to Lowe’s the day after his wife is assumed to have died back in 2011. He purchased buckets, cement, and locks. 

After the trip to the hardware store, Lozada took his four-year-old down the street to Chuck E Cheese. Video footage of them at the kids-themed restaurant was shown to the jury. 

Lozada was not charged right away, giving him time to flee to Venezuela with their four-year-old daughter. But in 2018, he was caught in Mexico, and they were both brought back to the states. The girl now lives in Belgium with her late mother’s family. 

Detectives say Lozada confessed in 2018 and unsuccessfully tried to get the confession thrown out. 

He twice took detectives to where he allegedly dumped her body parts, but Sylviane’s remains were never found. 

On Thursday, the state plans to show the court video of Lozada confessing to the murder.
